This e-book is dedicated to Slime mildew Physarum polycephalum, that is a huge unmarried phone able for allotted sensing, concurrent info processing, parallel computation and decentralized actuation. the benefit of culturing and experimenting with Physarum makes this slime mildew an amazing substrate for real-world implementations of unconventional sensing and computing devices


The e-book is a treatise of theoretical and experimental laboratory reports on sensing and computing homes of slime mildew, and at the improvement of mathematical and logical theories of Physarum habit.


It is proven how one can make logical gates and circuits, digital units (memristors, diodes, transistors, wires, chemical and tactile sensors) with the slime mildew. The publication demonstrates how one can alter houses of Physarum computing circuits with useful nano-particles and polymers, to interface the slime mildew with field-programmable arrays, and to take advantage of Physarum as a controller of microbial gas cells.


A special multi-agent version of slime is proven to serve good as a software program slime mildew able for fixing difficulties of computational geometry and graph optimization. The multiagent version is complemented by way of mobile automata versions with parallel accelerations. offered mathematical types encouraged via Physarum comprise non-quantum implementation of Shor's factorization, structural studying, computation of shortest direction tree on dynamic graphs, provide chain community layout, p-adic computing and syllogistic reasoning.


The e-book is a different composition of shiny and lavishly illustrated essays so one can motivate scientists, engineers and artists to use traditional phenomena in designs of destiny and emergent computing and sensing units. it's a 'bible' of experimental computing with spatially prolonged dwelling substrates, it spanstopics from biology of slime mildew, to bio-sensing, to unconventional computing units and robotics, non-classical logics and tune and arts.
